The wave of the day does it for me big time. Nice work Steen Barnes , Shaun Anderson and Swellnet.
In one photo you've encompassed everything nice about surfing. If I was a wanker I'd say that it was perfect except for the fact he is in a wetsuit. Which it is , it's perfect .....except for the fact he's in a wetsuit.

Ollie Dousset, deadset legend. Wave of consequence on a board of serious dimensions. Love it.

That board looks like a barge in the photo. Absolutely knifing the rail though, does anyone have an idea on the dimensions of that board?

My mate said to me when i first rocked up there on a huge swell "looks like pipe" i said "looks heavier than chopes" but at least if your too deep here you can choose to go right. But i dont know how the best big wave paddle surfers can knife into waves such as wave of the day.Looks impossible.

My mate years ago paddled out with a $4-5000 waterproof digital camera and took some great shots then got cleaned up by a 20 foot plus bomb., Lost his camera and nearly drowned. Found his camera luckily and sold all the footage telling the mag it was SW WA secret bombie. He made about $8000 out of that photo shoot.

No dramas Sprout, personally back in my day would have preferred to surf yesterdays wave of the day. but at the moment maybe not. It could be so many places too which is why the photo is so intriguing!

Straight outta Bass Straight
Is a brotha that is smothered in rubber
And make ya wish ya never come here
Dangerous motherfuckers raising hell
And if they ever get caught inside, they will bail
See, they don't give a fuck, that's the problem
They see a motherfuckin person, They don't dodge them
Hardly smart, lay low, go in for a while
And when they see that person pass, they smile
To me it's kinda funny, the attitude showin of a kook drivin
But don't know where the fuck he's going, just rollin
Lookin for a wave they call easy
But when the waves crash, they all get queazy
Ruthless! Never seen like a shark in the dark
Except when I pullback, see I'll get over the hesitation
And hear the scream of the one who got the hollow wave penetration
Give a little gust of wind and I'm jettin
But leave a memory, that ill be forgettin
So what about the person who got shacked? Fuck em!
You think I give a damn about a them? I keep trucking
This is the autobiography of the Bells, and if you ever come to hells
You'll be by a stupid dope brotha who will smothered in rubber
Word to the motherfucker, straight outta Bass Straight
